Bojangles' Coliseum, is just minutes from Center City Charlotte. The historic venue hosts concerts, family shows, rodeo and bull riding competitions. The Coliseum has character, history and class. Artists such as Elvis, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Queen have all hit the stage in the Coliseum's past.
The landmark dome opened in 1955 as Charlotte's first coliseum and served as the region's major sports and entertainment facility for over 30 years. The building closed in 1988, but after extensive refurbishing and retrofitting, 11,000 seat venue reopened to the public in 1993. The renovation restored the coliseum's classic ambiance.
The celebrated facility has been known by many names: Charlotte Coliseum, Independence Arena, Cricket Arena and now Bojangles' Coliseum. Thought the name may have changed, one thing has remained the same: quality entertainment that creates memories for a lifetime.
